one user on my network has an xbox360 an the xbox can’t handle the login screen.

Have identified the MAC address of the xbox.

Thanks for your help.

Peter,

Sorry, haven’t been alerted to any activity in this thread…

Anyway, if you haven’t figured it out yet, you go to the “Captive Portal” menu item (v2.0.RC2). In the right hand side you’ll find a box called “Free Authorized”. Change the context from “Service” to “Client” in the drop down menu. Click “+” and enter “Description” and “MAC Address”. If your Xbox is running DHCP you’ll want to leave the IP field blank. Don’t forget to click “Save”…

That ought to allow your Xbox to pass through the Captive Portal without validating. Mind you, I don’t use ZeroShell for this, so there might be something I missed. Hopefully it’ll get you started, if nothing else.

Regards
